The transport industry’s leading trade fair, InnoTrans, was the site today of the launch of the inaugural SNCF Global Mobility Index. A unique collaboration between The Global Journal and French rail company SNCF, the data-driven index features in-depth analysis of mobility challenges facing over 60 governments around the world.
“The Global SNCF Mobility Index is the first in-depth attempt to better understand the sustainability of mobility of goods and people on a country-level. This will hopefully be a tool for decision-makers to approach this topic in a more holistic manner,” said the Index’s author, André Schneider.
Published by The Global Journal, The Global SNCF Mobility Index demonstrates how transport systems can act as both drivers and barriers to sustainable development, linked closely to environmental, societal and economic factors. A per-country tool and set of rankings integrating global and regional perspectives, the index aims to drive discussion about the evolving mobility challenges that policy makers will need to grapple with in the next five years. The publication has a deliberately wide scope, with a focus on 66 countries encompassing three important sub-groupings: the European Union, the G20 and the BRICs.
